OBORO, 2013

In this workshop, we will look at recent history, current trends and particularly at the potential future of sound art.

What happens to sound art (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_art), audio art and sound installation? What happens to their relationship with acoustics, audiences and technologies? What is the effect and scope of the sound artworks presented in the exhibition space, in the natural or industrial liminal spaces and contexts of electronic art festivals?

Audio art has many listed practices, and new avenues are emerging. Each milieu has its specific culture and practices: the underground, electronic music communities, university research. There is also a wide array of aesthetics in sound creation: noise, minimalist, maximalist, etc. The ways of doing things are also varied: installation, ephemeral gestures, DIY and collaborative practices, network … This proliferation of approaches deserves to be studied according to three orientations: the recent past which informs the present of the approaches to creation, which can induce new avenues for reflection and action in the future.
